Artificial intelligence is partnering up with HR professionals to simplify processes and evolve to data-driven decision making as collateral for that unique gut feeling developed during years of experience.

From the candidate selection to employee retention and early warning of team members on the way out.

Starting with Talent Acquisition, AI can handle stressful and monotonous work that usually demands a lot from HR professionals. Artificial intelligence can read more data points than a human can and detect trends and patterns that can quickly reduce the list by 75%. The Artificial intelligence can help the professional to make better decisions both by reducing the number of applicants to analyze and by reducing the number of poor hiring decisions.

After selecting the most promising candidate, there’s the task of onboarding. Some companies have onboarding procedures and welcome books to help new employees to adapt and have a soft landing in the new ecosystem and new job. The AI can help:

  • by determining customized onboarding procedures for every single position;
  • by providing mentoring to a new employee, makes onboarding much smoother thought mentoring software’s;
  • with an “Onboarding Buddy” – an AI chatbot – like a “veteran employee” “that allows a brand new employee to ask the "dumb" questions they might otherwise feel embarrassed to ask their boss, but still need to somehow figure out”;

This can increase the retention rates when compared to candidates who didn’t have the onboarding procedures and programs.

By reading more data points and extrapolating information from all the patterns, even the most tenuous ones the Artificial intelligence can successfully plan, organize and coordinate trading programs for all the positions in the company. By managing more information than humans can, the AI can determine the best timeframe for new courses and schedule lessons according to the individual preferences of the employees.

When on the job, the AI can help HR professionals to find individuals who are engaged and highly productive by monitoring their behavior and analyze their performance indicators. Artificial intelligence can evaluate how employees live up to the objectives set by the HR professionals. These tools serve to improve productivity, detect early signs of fatigue and detect team members who show a prolonged lack of engagement.

Companies tend to try and keep the best employees. These are difficult to hire and hard to keep in the team. “Almost 60% of organizations consider employee retention their biggest problem”. Artificial intelligence can determine team member’s individual affinities and needs in order to determine who deserves a raise and who might need help to get their life into balance again. This allows for proactive actions on behalf of the HR team that gets the chance to solve a problem before it occurs.

Some platforms are designed to identify the those who may be heading for the exit by separating the fatigued, the burned out or the ones who are just heading out.

Advanced Artificial intelligence platforms are a very loyal and hardworking assistance to detect fatigue and many other trends that make the life easier for HR professional helping in most tasks and above all collecting data, using machine learning to analyze patterns, this will help to detect, predict and prevent in real-time an issue before it gets out of hand.

As a consequence will help to increase employee engagement, improving employee retention and productivity levels.
